Rated 5 out of 5áby Shag126 Very well built
Like other reviews, I agree that this is a heavy and somewhat bulky item. The padding is excellent. It should protect even the finest of rods and reels. The outside pockets have plenty of room for fly boxes or whatever else you may need. The design is classic, but with modern features such as magnetic clasps for the buckle straps. I would buy this again.

Rated 3 out of 5áby chromek9 Beautiful but heavy
This is a beautiful product. It appears to be very well built and shows signs of a quality product that should last for many years. Despite the great features of the product, it is just too heavy for my taste. I am looking for a product that I can use traveling on airplanes, etc. Weight is a critical factor for me, so I returned the product.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MargaretFalls Huge Quality Protection
Significant step forward in rod tube travel protection. Very high quality product. Heavy duty in all respects - tough canvas and inside padding will certainly give the protection we all want when traveling in vehicles. Rod tubes are held securely, large outside pockets are a plus. I have an older rod tube holder from Bean's I purchased many years ago and still use it but not for traveling. This new product has elastic holders for three rods but will store six easily. SO I plan to leave a few at home when I'm on the road. It is not light in weight and that's OK. I wanted a quality case for my bamboo rods and the ability to carry three in total protection. You will not be disappointed in this strong carry case.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SteveDW A 'modern classic' - rugged and durable
As a rule, I avoid 'imported' goods. Due to the LLBean brand, I bought the rod case; and it is indeed a quality-crafted piece, far exceeding my guarded expectations. 'Old School' bamboo fly rods are my choice, and this bag will hold up to five rod tubes handily - three in the elastic loops and two strapped between. Amply quilt-padded inside and durable heavy waxed canvas outside makes for one tough carrier. Exterior pockets are oversized and easily hold reels, fly boxes, and other accessories. Simply fold over and strap one end to meet airline limits. Best fishing luggage for the job.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Speysport An excellent bag
This is a well-designed, well-built and sturdy bag for 2-piece rods. It will easily accommodate 58" rod tubes. It has elastic loops to hold three tubes in place and the bag will probably take four or five tubes (depending on their diameter) if the loops aren't used. The bag is heavy canvas and interior cushioning adds further protection to rod tubes. The external pockets will hold a substantial amount of additional gear. The zippers have loops to enable the bag to be locked. All in all, this is an excellent bag.

Rated 5 out of 5áby kourtlyn elegant
First I must say LL Bean has impeccable customer service. They really care about exceeding expectations. The rod case is of excellent quality and much heavier than expected. When I say heavier, I mean it is not a cheaply made case, it has girth to it. The two outer pockets are large enough to keep fly boxes, reels and other gadgets. The interior lining is of good quality, again not cheaply made. The overall appearance of the rod case is very elegant and traditional. I would highly recommend this case.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ifrpilotmn Unreal
It arrived today. How is this only $99 including shipping? I appear to be holding something easily worth three, possibly four times as much as the retail cost. I now have four (2 pc.) spinning rods (one at 7?) placed inside in the olive drab quilted padding. This is along with two spinning reels in one of the two massive side packs. Note- This is replacing my Plano case, which imploded after only eight years of use. The only thing I can compare this to is a high-end purse that the beautiful Mrs.ifrpilotmn purchases bi-annually. Those things are easily (based on the statements) $300+ for less than half the amount of leather, brass and canvas. This is unbelievable. Not that I would normally compare a rod case to a woman?s purse, but based on the fact that they both hold THE MOST IMPORTANT ITEMS IN THE WORLD BASED ON GENDER, then yes, it?s a valid comparison.

Rated 5 out of 5áby BuckeyeBeaver Well-built, heavy duty, super protective!
Very well made with excellent attention to detail. The overall case is quite heavy but will provide maximum protection for your rods and reels. Leatherwork is beautifully done. It is a work of art as well as being a practical piece of equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5áby JWilliams Excellent bag and better value
This bag is well thought-out and well executed. The quality surprised me considering the price. I also expect that it may do some double duty as a shotgun bag.
In addition, I ordered the 4-piece rod bag, and look forward to receiving it.
Overall, excellent product and what you would expect from LL Bean.
